LOS ANGELES - An apparent fight between two sisters end in a house fire and a deadly shooting in Chatsworth.
The Los Angeles Fire Department responded to a call of a house fire in the 9600 block of North Laramie Avenue a little before 2 p.m. Shortly after arriving at the scene, fighterfighters realized this could be the same house where a possible armed suspect may have been so the Los Angeles Police Department took over the call.
According to LAPD, one of the sisters allegedly pointed a gun at the other while actively trying to set the house on fire. LAPD was told the sisters had been fighting over who inherits what of the house from the father who used to live there.
A shooting then broke out, ending with a woman in her 50s being pronounced dead at the hospital.
LAFD eventually took down the fire after the suspect, the woman allegedly with the gun, was shot and apprehended by police.
It is unknown what prompted the shooting to take place. Officials did not say if the woman opened fire at police.
The fire and the shooting are both under investigation.
